  1. Day 0

    Hi Guys!

    I'd like to join you, I think it's a great challenge. I will destroy the PMO ring, I won't allow my urges to destroy me!

    Day 304, 305 & 306

    Hello brothers! I'm quitting my studies while I work and learn new things that I really care for, basically studying by myself!

    From now on I'll go to the gym Monday to Friday and try to grow some muscles. Also I'm thinking on moving to Europe maybe in a year, so I'll start to save some money. God bless you!

    dunno whats wrong with me the last days... relapsed again
    Day 0.
    I have no motivation since I've had a "setback" of a memory of my last break up - it was rly painful...
    It seems I still havent fully gettin over it yet... although its been almost three years since the last time I ve seen her.
    I still see her everywhere. Normally Im faster in processing a break. I had many. But this time its different.
    This time PMO (again) took advantage of that...
    low motivation - pain ... great for PMO

    Im tryin to get away from porn for over three years now...PMO had planted the belief in me that Im "Not doing much progress" . PMO said "You dont need a relationship - it sucks cuz its only troubles always problems... you dont need a women -> you have PMO" . NOW PMO IS the PROBLEM and haha it was BEFORE but hided itself way too well. LIKE GOLLUM. Its scary . It seems every thought comes true whether its positive or negative.

    BUT I know that I make progress. Three years ago there was a time where I talked myself into "PMO - isnt a real problem or addiction" NOW I definitely know its an addiction and that I need to end it. And I actually try to do things to end it. What sometimes makes me feel even weaker because Im not able to do it - Im not as strong as I think I am. Thinking that I dont make progress is wrong and only serves the PMO-Monster to have another relapse due to my lack of motivation...
    Already had a Cannabis addiction and left that behind... But this PMO thing seems way harder ...
    OK
    I wanna find back my motivation now. This cant go further like the last days. I am able to do this better. I know that.

    Day 66 / 1000. Battles won against pmo: 44.

    Day off happened today. As usual on days off I have more time to think. And I think I am overthinking. It's no secret that due to nofap I have difficult time falling asleep. I used to pmo before sleep in the past to calm myself. Now when I can't sleep I am worrying how I'll feel the next day and from time to time I postpone alarm clock, which furthers bad sleep cycle. I should stop that. No worries. If I am tempted, I should leave the room (maybe go outside for fresh night air or go write here using f.lux, or watch televisions,...) and not go back until I am sleepy. With time - waking up on the same time - this problem will pass, processes of nature will get balanced.

    I can't blame myself for being impatient. This whole healing process takes annoyingly long. It will take even longer, if I keep changing my mind.

    Day 158

    One of the hardest days I’ve had this year; nothing triggered the battle, but as I was trying to write an essay I was inundated with urges - I’ve felt on edge all day. I ended up browsing the social media accounts of girls I used to talk to, sadly with a lustful heart. All day I’ve been fighting the urge to create a dating account online and flirt aimlessly, or open up an explicit website, the urges haven’t felt like this since I began my reboot.

    I’ve made it to bed without anything severe happening, but I must steel my mind and refrain from bringing back memories of old online dalliances from when I was a PMO addict - please pray for me.

    Day 6. Missed day 5 as I was really busy which is nice. Back onto day 6 though, not a good day. Urges are maybe a 5 of 10 atm and not liking it. In a weird void, like time is slowed down and I'm stuck between wanting to PMO or nothing at all Problem is anything I enjoy doing feels boring. Think I'll have a sleeping pill and get ready for bed. Might as well sleep if I'm bored and it's better than falling to the PMO demon.

    I relapsed. There is no secret, never take the first step, even when you're under trigger. You have to be stronger than your urges. I will try harder in this new streak. Never lose sight of your motivation.

    Checking in. I had a good day with minimal urges or eye strays and made wise choices about timing (how much I left myself for things like showering and getting ready, when I executed my routines, and what I did with my time). Tomorrow I become a hobbit!

    Day 41 .Today is a busy day:(
     
  13. Day 2 complete!

    Custody of the eyes is going to be the key to winning a lot of battles this summer. In a church setting I'll be working with a lot of women, which isn't something I'm very used to, but I can use this as an opportunity to grow. If I avoid all external sources of lustful thoughts (PMO) and silence all the internal sources, I'll be doing quite well.

    St. Lucy, pray for us!

    I feel like I'm on a mission again, hope rises. I can get easier out of bed. Downside is I believe again that: "I need to do something to get somewgere". I wanted to get rid of this mindset. I guess the solution could be to abstain from P to benefit others.

  18. Hello,

    Does anybody have the experience in attending NoFAP meetings groups online?

    Beginning of Day 1.
    Did all my routines:

    • 2min Ice-Cold-Shower
    • 5min Meditation
    • 1min Hand-Stand
    • 3min Self-Love
    • 3min Faith-and-Belief
    • 2min Gratitude

    After that I feel so much better than yesterday
    these routines are essential - and they are weapons against PMO

    left to do in the evening:
    • journaling with Emotional Self-talk (15min)
    • And I need some relaxation -points !

    Greets Out!
